Most of the carpeting used in homes and commercial buildings relies on SB Latex, a styrene-based product. Carpets are made by inserting the fibers, or pile, into a webbed plastic backing. A secondary backing is then applied to the pile and plastic backing to provide stability. SB Latex is the product that acts as the glue, or binder, that holds everything together.
